New Line is scratching at a start date on Hello Kitty. The studio, which set the rights to make a film based on the global brand in 2019, has set Jennifer Coyle and Leo Matsuda to direct what will be an animated/live-action hybrid effort.
新线影业正在商定《Hello Kitty》的开拍日期。该公司在2019年就取得了基于Hello Kitty形象的电影拍摄权，并决定让詹妮弗·科伊尔和李奥·松田执导，这将会是一部动画形象和真人混合的电影。
Plot details surrounding the trendsetting Japanese pop icon are under wraps, but the intention is for it to be catnip for the global consumer audience.
Beau Flynn and his FlynnPictureCo. will produce the film and pursued the Hello Kitty rights for over five years with New Line Cinema/Warner Bros. The film will mark the first time a studio has ever brought Hello Kitty to the big screen.
比尤·弗林和他的弗林影业公司也将参与该片的制作，其与新线影业/华纳兄弟竞争Hello Kitty的版权长达5年多。此举也标志着Hello Kitty将首次被搬上大银幕。
Coyle and Matsuda bring years of animation experience to the project and have worked on numerous animated films and TV shows, but this is their first collaboration as they beat out many other directors for the job.
Coyle said “this is not only a rare chance to bring a beloved character to life, but also to spread the message of love, friendship and inclusivity that Hello Kitty stands for. The world so needs her brand of joy and happiness.”
“Growing up in Brazil with a Japanese family, I was surrounded by the whimsy of Hello Kitty and it served as a reminder that it's okay to be different. Along with Jen, FlynnPictureCo. and New Line, I am delighted by this incredible opportunity to work with one of the most universally beloved characters and expand their relatable Sanrio stories even further.”Matsuda said.
